EX-LAWMAKER FACES A DECADE BEHIND BARS

|| By FITSNEWS || Former S.C. Rep. Thad Viers will be sentenced on August 19 at a federal courthouse in Florence, S.C., according to court documents.

Viers, 36, was indicted last August on fourteen federal charges in relation to his business dealings with a shady paving contractor. In April, he pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering related to the scandal.

That charge could land him behind bars for up to ten years.

Viers resigned from the S.C. House of Representatives in March 2012 prior to being indicted on harassment charges related to his toxic relationship with Candace Bessinger – the granddaughter of South Carolina barbecue magnate Maurice Bessinger.

He later pleaded guilty to those charges and served sixty days in jail.

At the time that scandal broke, Viers was a frontrunner to win the GOP primary for the newly created seventh congressional district – a race eventually won by fiscal liberal Tom Rice.

In his latest scandal, Viers was accused of helping the contractor hide more than $500,000 worth of assets from an insurance company looking to collect on a $6 million debt.  His co-defendant Marlon Davis Weaver, 55, was sentenced to 12 months and one day for his role in the scam – and ordered to repay $1.2 million.  Another co-defendant – Conway, S.C. pastor Archie Larue Evans – got seven years in jail.

U.S. District Judge Bruce Howe Hendricks will preside over Viers’ sentencing hearing.

From the looks of it, ol Thad has been enjoying himself since his guilty plea. Certainly having more fun that serving with the clowns in the SC General Assembly. His girlfriend is smoking hot.

On his first night in prison he made a big mistake. Apparently ‘I’ll toss you for the top
bunk’ means something different on the inside.

After his first few prison showers, he realized
why they call a prison term a ‘stretch’.

Another Republican Embarrassment!
These people are hurting the party and turning off a lot of people.
We need to beat Hillary, or whoever gets the Democrat nomination!
I cannot help but wonder and be concerned, as I attend functions and see Sanford, Peeler, Eckstrom and some of these other embarrassments flaunting women and watch their disgraceful public displays. At least, the Feds. have gotten rid of Metts and Harrell.
It is up to the party, the voters and the decent moral Republicans to rebuke and cast out these others, let them know their immorality, activities and actions are not wanted and needed in our folds. They only cause negative impressions, comments and embarrassment to the rest of us.

Former Rep. Thad Viers will learn within three weeks his punishment for participating in a money laundering scheme involving a former client and a Conway pastor, according to recently filed court documents.

Viers is scheduled to appear Aug. 19 for sentencing at the federal courthouse in Florence, according to an order signed Tuesday.

The hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m., with U.S. District Judge Bruce Howe Hendricks presiding, the order states.

Viers, 36, pleaded guilty in April to one money-laundering related account. He faces up to 10 years in prison and three years of supervised relief.

Co-defendant Marlon Davis Weaver, 55, has since been sentenced to 12 months and one day for his role in the money laundering operation after cooperating with investigators.

He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million.

A third defendant, former Conway pastor Archie Larue Evans, was sentenced in July to seven years in prison for his role in the scheme.

Weaver got only 12 months and 1 day. Archie got 7 years.

Weaver got a light sentence for cooperating with the feds. Viers knows tons more stuff the feds need to know than he.

Viers talk will let him walk. Slap on the wrist. “Go ye and sin no more.”

It’s only common sense.

The higher up you are, the easier it is to rat people out for a lighter sentence. That’s why, when you do something really dirty, you need lackeys to take the fall… so you spread the wealth around (a little bit) – the more people you can finger, the more jail time you can get out of… even if all they did was take a few thousand compared to your hundreds of thousands.

Cowboy Joe was telling his fellow cowboys back on the ranch
about his first visit to a big-city church. “When I got there, they had me
park my old truck in the corral,” Joe began. “You mean the parking
lot,” interrupted Charlie, a more worldly fellow. “I walked up the
trail to the door,” Joe continued. “The sidewalk to the door,”
Charlie corrected him. “Inside the door, I was met by this dude,” Joe
went on. “That would be the usher,” Charlie explained. “Well,
the usher led me down the chute,” Joe said. “You mean the
aisle,” Charlie said. “Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit
there,” Joe continued. “Pew,” Charlie retorted.
“Yeah,” recalled Joe. “Thats what that pretty lady said when I
sat down beside her.”

“Hell always be just a good ol boy. When he walks in, Im sure all hell say
is hello.” “I know Tex better than either of you,” said the
third. “Hes so smart, he’ll figure out a way to do both. Here he comes
now.” Tex swung open the bunkhouse door and shouted, “Audi,

A guy’s got a big fat wife. She gets out of the shower, sits on the pot, and gets stuck, so he calls the plumber. Then he realizes that she’s sitting there naked, and he can’t have that, so he takes his bowler derby and puts it on her lap to cover up home base. The plumber shows up, he takes one look, and he says, “Listen, Mac, I think I can save your wife, but the guy in the hat’s a goner.”

I’ve never had that problem. I like DM because they give a lot of photos on some articles I’m interested in. One example, about a year ago when the guy in Florida fell into a sinkhole under his bedroom (I don’t think he was found) DM had about 20 photos of the house and neighborhood. Later I discovered that more sinkholes were discovered in his neighborhood, and DM kept adding more photos of that during the day. Most times all I need to do is look at the photos and not read the article.

I think that the original sinkhole was only under the bedroom area, and he didn’t fall too far. Then it widened or deepened and he went further down covered by new stuff. Horrible situation for all.
